Sneak Preview of The ‘New’ Dental House

The Dental House has been undergoing a major ‘facelift’ since back in October 2016 and the progress has been pleasing and steady. We would like to thank all of our patients again for their co-operation during this time of transition and, as always, we really are trying our best to keep disruption to a minimum.

The Dental House will be addressing some of the current issues that cause our practice not to be as great as we would like it to be…

The most pressing issues include: 1. Phone lines! Currently we have just one phone line in and out of a very busy surgery. Soon there will be several and getting through to us should not be an issue- thank you for your patience! We will soon be doubling in capacity which will also make it easier to get urgent appointments when needed. 2. Disabled access– improving this is one of our main priorities and one of the reasons behind our major refurbishment. When building work is complete, our practice will be fully accessible with a brand new ramp for wheelchairs and prams and a spacious patient toilet. 3. Waiting list! This is a temporary measure for people wishing to sign up to The Dental House. We are officially ‘full’ at the moment but when our renovation and extension is finished we will unveil additional surgeries and will, therefore, be able to start taking on more patients, starting with this list- thanks for waiting! In the meantime, we continue to accept new patients as and when a space becomes available.

The Dental House is currently based at 10 Derby Lane and as part of our renovation and extension plans we have acquired the property next door, 8 Derby Lane, so that we can create a much bigger and more accessible space for everyone. The refurbishments started at the No. 8 side of our practice where a single-storey extension, new surgeries and stylish new décor are all part of the transformation. We plan to get No. 8 to a point where it is ‘almost’ finished and then we will temporarily move across to this part of our site whilst No. 10 has its chance to be updated.

We hope to be functioning from 8 Derby Lane from some point in early May and although it won’t have all of the ‘finishing touches’ in place, patients will get a sneak preview of the new look of The Dental House and will begin to enjoy our new facilities. It won’t be perfect at this stage and before the two properties merge, we ask that clients have patience with our temporary waiting area and reception desk.

It will hopefully then just be a couple of months more before all the work is complete and we can reveal and re-launch our practice and present you with a much nicer environment to visit. We would like to thank all of our well-wishers and supporters during these exciting times. Here are a few snaps of what has so far been changed/ created…
